    The objective of this course is to gain insight in the problem domain of Collaborative Design with special attention to Systems Engineering (SE) and Building Information Models (BIM).

    A consortium of companies will work on a design assignment for one quartile. A student is member on one of the following companies: Architects, Urban designers, and Engineers. A company consists of 4 persons with one person as Chief Executive Officer (CEO), one Systems Engineering Officer (SEO) and the other two as domain experts. The consortium management consist of all CEOs and SEOs from all companies. The project starts with writing a project management plan. Following the design is created between the companies while monitoring and evaluating the progress. In this process the application of SE and BIM techniques and tools is compulsory. Consortium management is tutored by the teachers in weekly sessions. A group dynamics training is included in the course. Finally the design is presented, a report is written about the design process, and an individual scientific paper as a contribution to the Collaborative Design research and development.
